DSD to Naim DAC V1

I am trying to stream DSD to a Naim DAC V1 without converting to PCM First but all I hear is static. Everything else works fine in PCM mode.

I use USB to connect a Mac AIR

running Sierra to the DAC.

If I convert to PCM I hear the music and it sounds pretty good - However NAIM says the DAC should be able to convert DSD to analogue so I would like to hear what that sounds like. If I set Audirvana Preferences using Native DSD Capability “DSD over PCM standard 1.0” or 1.1 all I hear is static. If I select “None: Convert to PCM” I hear the music.

I attached some shots of the DAC firmware which is all up to date and A+ preferences both with PCM and DSD.

If you are trying to help, lets not get into discussions on the value of DSD - I would simply like to hear it and try for myself.

Thanks for any help on this.

This dac is not nativly capable of using DSD files. Please check Naim Webpage

Actually, with the current firmware, the Naim DAC-V1 is supposed to play up to DSD 128K: https://www.naimaudio.com/news/21751/dsd-playback-now-available-naim-audio-dacs.

I just downloaded a trial version of Audirvana and am also experiencing an epic failure. So far, whenever I play a DSD file, the playback in Audirvana changes from the play button to the pause button, but the timeline stays at 0:00.

FWIW, the Active Device settings say “Supported DSD rates DSD64, DSD128”.

Can someone at Audirvana please help?
